Female alcohol addiction is a problem known to all countries, social groups, and nationalities. It’s not just the external factors, but also the peculiarities of the influence of alcohol on the female body.
What is female alcoholism?
Female alcoholism (alcohol addiction syndrome) is a mental chronic illness characterized by an addiction to alcoholic beverages. Difficult to treat, highly addictive, with unpredictable consequences and the development of severe alcoholism.
Causes and factors
Female alcoholism is caused by:
- psychological factors (depression, stress, loneliness, loss of loved ones, resentment);
- physiological factors (heredity, strong toxic and euphoric effects);
- social factors (easy accessibility, popularity of alcohol, environment).
Female alcohol addiction develops faster than in men, which is the main problem in the treatment and recovery of the body. This is due to:
- the high sensitivity of the female body to alcohol-containing substances;
- slower excretion of alcohol decomposition products from the body;
- a temperament that leads to mental addiction;
- the vulnerability of neurons to toxins.
Stages of alcohol addiction
Stage 0: casual or situational use of small amounts of alcohol with mild psychological addiction. Risk of losing control over the use and the transition to the next stage of addiction.
Stage 1: mental alcohol addiction. Characteristics: an obsessive desire to drink alcohol, increasing doses, loss of body reactivity (nausea, vomiting) to an excess of alcohol.
Stage 2: physical and mental alcohol addiction. Characteristics: systematic alcohol use due to hormonal disorders, hangover syndrome, binge drinking, alcoholic psychosis.
Stage 3: physiological changes – extreme addiction. Characteristics: zero alcohol tolerance, indiscriminate use of alcohol, complete physical addiction, psychosomatic disorders (personality degradation, irreversible damage to the central nervous system, brain, gastrointestinal tract, circulatory system, and other organs).
Treatment of alcohol addiction can be started at any of these stages but ensures easier and faster results if started early.
Female alcohol addiction: symptoms, consequences
Signs of alcohol use are quite noticeable on a woman, nevertheless, we list them:
- physical (untidiness, face swelling, hoarseness, characteristic odor, loss of coordination, hand tremors);
- behavioral (personality degradation, aggression, psychosis, conflict, neglect of maternal responsibilities, promiscuous sexual relations, change of social environment);
- psychological (denial of the problem, apathy, attempts to justify themselves).
Any of these symptoms should alert loved ones, in case of any suspicions, do not hesitate to contact a narcologist. The clinic’s specialists will help to find the truth, facilitate and accelerate the patient’s treatment.
Alcohol has a harsh effect on all organs and systems of the female body. The danger is the rate of exposure and difficult detoxification.
It affects internal organs (liver cirrhosis, alcoholic hepatitis, pancreatitis, gastritis, pancreatitis, heart attack), nervous system, reproductive function (the birth of children with impairments and congenital defects). Behavioral degradation leads to concomitant diseases (AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases).
